Truth: Women often tear during vaginal delivery. 

Another Truth: tearing can be a part of normal, natural childbirth.

A Final Truth: There ARE things we can do to prevent tearing, and I’ve seen many of my patients (even first-time moms!) avoid tearing completely!

Part of my OB package is an L&D prep appt, but you can also make this a stand-alone appointment. Together, we’ll work through:

  • a few labor positions that are best for YOUR body
  • teaching your partner a few hands-on techniques to help ease pain AND create space for the baby to get in a great position
  • teaching you a few things to help prepare your pelvic floor for delivery, which will help prevent or minimize tearing.

Childbirth is beautiful – let’s do what we can with the things you CAN control so that you feel empowered, prepared, and knowledgeable for what’s to come.
